The pub landlord has been reinstated at the Highwayman after a huge Facebook campaign in his support.
We reported last week how Andrew Davies, the pub’s popular landlord, had been suspended by brewery, Heron and Brearley while an ‘ongoing inquiry’ took place.
A spokesperson for the Facebook group said: ‘Everyone involved in the campaign is delighted with the outcome and the return of Andrew, with common sense eventually prevailing.
‘We would like to express our thanks to everyone who joined our group and took time to sign the petition from as far afield as Australia, New Zealand. Canada and the USA, we will never know what would have happened had we not made a stand.
‘A very special thanks goes to all those who helped distribute our flyer, you know who you are so I will not name you but it couldn’t have been done without you. ‘We would also like to thank the landlords of the Peveril and Waterfall who allowed locals to use their venues for Darts & Pool fixtures during Andy’s suspension.
A Heron and Brearley statement said: ‘We are satisfied with the outcome of our inquiry.’
